Adobe Acrobat 9 holds iconic status in my office. (See A Plea for PDF: How Adobe Acrobat Can Revolutionize Your Practice). We love it. We use it for “everything”–or so we think, until someone thinks of another way to put it to use. There are so many unexpected ways to put the PDF to good use that we’ve started a list of them that’s shared throughout the office. One of my coworkers, Felicia B., came up with a way to put Acrobat 9 to good use during March Madness. I thought it was pretty creative so I’m passing the tip along to readers.
Felicia used the Typewriter tool in Acrobat to make her basketball picks this year. Unlike the scribbled brackets of her family and friends, Felicia’s brackets are neatly typed and ready for emailing–without a trip to the scanner.
This tip isn’t computer wizardry. It’s just a great example of thinking outside the box and putting software to work! Thanks for the tip, Felicia!!
